Any power problems or storms lately?
possibly, its been more than a month since it wasn't working. It is not on a surge bar or anything. is there an internal "fuse" or something? I'm a auto mechanic so not scared to open it up myself for something fairly simple.
There is a fuse, if you take the back off and follow the power cord to where it plugs in, right near that will be the AC fuse.
Do you have a meter to check it with?

fuse is good, next??
Check the voltages between the main board and the power supply, do you have anything?
What should it be? I just have an automotive style DVOM, but it should work. I usually only play with 12-24v stuff. I actually need to do some actual work for awhile, is it Ok if I reply in a few hours?
Right now we are looking for a 5V standby
no 5v on any of the connectors, using and existing ground, pushing power button does not make any change
What do you mean by existing ground?
A screw with a wire going to it from the power supply board. into the meatal case
Ok that should be good, any bad capacitors on that board?
Nothing looks burnt or overheated if that's what you mean, after that, your going over my pay grade. is it worth going any further, replace the power supply if i could even find one???
hmm...Ok how about this, can you get me a picture of the power supply? (if you can post a picture, please click the icon above where you are typing with the green tree on it. This will allow you to upload a picture)
I'm done, thanks for the help and information, i already put it back together.
Ok sounds good, sorry we did not have a great outcome.
